Document Description
The overall objective of the Swain Meadow Restoration Project is to restore meadow hydrologic function. The design elements include reconstructing riffles (also known as riffle augmentation) in the creek channels and constructing Beaver Dam Analogs (BDA) in the upper reaches, downstream of the existing beaver dams and where willows are present. In addition, roads and former ditches will be contoured to match natural topography and larger trees will be placed along the meadow margin.
